Stop arming Israel

“One of the issues we aim to raise awareness about is Israel’s impunity against international law through its unconditional support from the United States,” Hani Ghazi, the New York-area Israeli Apartheid Week(IAW) coordinator, told MintPress News before speaking at the rally. “Netanyahu’s speech perpetuates that complicity.

Chomsky, Not War, Murder

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes…known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few…No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” James Madison 1795

From the article: Above all, they want Ukraine’s mighty neighbour, Russia. They want to Balkanise or dismember Russia and exploit the greatest source of natural gas on earth. As the Arctic ice melts, they want control of the Arctic Ocean and its energy riches, and Russia’s long Arctic land border. Their man in Moscow used to be Boris Yeltsin, a drunk, who handed his country’s economy to the West. His successor, Putin, has re-established Russia as a sovereign nation; that is his crime.

Rape Culture

Hedges: “The porn industry has hijacked the sexuality of an entire culture and is laying waste to a whole generation of boys,” she warned. “And when you lay waste to a generation of boys, you lay waste to a generation of girls.”

“When you fight porn you fight global capitalism,” she said. “The venture capitalists, the banks, the credit card companies are all in this feeding chain. This is why you never see anti-porn stories. The media is implicated. It is financially in bed with these companies. Porn is part of this.

•In the Draft Environmental Impact Statement of October 2012 Section ES-23 to ES-24 evaluated a different plan, that did not include running the LRT in a shallow tunnel orco-locating freight trains next to LRT, that is, a plan that is different from the one currently being implemented by the Met Council.

•Importantly, that study concluded that co-locating freight and LRT in the Kenilworth Corridor would be detrimental to the environment and would NOT adequately preserve or protect the quality of life. The DEIS recommended against locating freight and LRT in the corridor.

Kathy: I hope that someday Senator McCain will gain the insight to repent of insulting them, just as one of the witnesses that day, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, may now regret having exalted the “indispensable” U.S. nation’s right to lead in using force, having since admitted, “We have been talking about our exceptionalism during the recent eight years.

Drones Fly, Children Die

Greenwald: I have no idea whether this 13-year-old boy was “a member of al-Qaeda,” whatever that might mean for a boy that young. But neither does the New York Times, which is why it’s incredibly irresponsible for media outlets reflexively to claim that those killed by U.S. drone strikes are terrorists.

While Law and order politicians certainly deserve blame for Louisiana’s massive prison population, the anti-black prison industrial complex, and the for-profit jail industry, have proven to be lucrative hustles for local authorities. “Additionally, the sheriffs are given financial incentive in order to keep their local jails full. They are actually paid per inmate,” Eisen said.
